Title : Purkitji
Size/Medium : 457 x 305mm: acrylic on canvas Painting

Marie has depicted a Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) story for her country north of Balgo around Purkitji (Sturt Creek). The story is of the Seven Sisters who lived as mussels in a place called Ngama Ngama along Purkitji (Sturt Creek). During the Tjukurrpa a transformation took place at Ngama Ngama and the sisters, all of the Napaltjarri skin group, emerged from Purkitji as people. The sisters then proceeded to teach the Jaru and Walmajarri women living in the area about women’s Law and culture. The shapes in this painting depict the marks the women left in the ground as they performed the dancing ceremonies for this country.
